About Us

Platte Valley Medical Center (PVMC) became the first private general medical-surgical hospital in Adams and Southern Weld Counties in 1960. For 47 years, Platte Valley Medical Center was located on seven acres at 18th and Bridge Street in Brighton. In 2007, Platte Valley Medical Center moved to a 50-acre campus at I-76 and 144th Avenue.

Today, PVMC is a 98-bed community hospital. As a member of the SCL Health System, PVMC has been designated one of the world’s most patient-centered hospitals by Planetree, Inc. Platte Valley’s 10 Pillars of Healing are incorporated into every patient experience. They include integrative therapies, human interactions, support networks, healing design, education and information, healthy and delicious meals, healing art therapy, spirituality, healing touch, and healthy communities to help patients recover.

Also a nationally ranked top performing hospital, PVMC offers high-level services —including a Primary Stroke Center, an Accredited Chest Pain Center and advanced cardiovascular program, a Level II Special Care Nursery, and innovative surgical, orthopedic and women’s services — found in many larger metropolitan hospitals.

Our Mission is to Foster Optimal Health for All.

Facility Size:

There are four, 3-story buildings with more than 347,301 square feet on the campus. The buildings include a 98-bed patient tower, a diagnostics and treatment building, and two 58,319 square foot medical office buildings for physician offices and specialty services. The full campus is designed with the future buildout potential of six stories and 300 beds to make PVMC a full-scale regional medical center.

Platte Valley Medical Center also has two outpatient medical plazas; one in the Reunion area of Commerce City and the other in Fort Lupton.
